Know and exploit your digital assets

Data is the new currency – it exists in large quantities in every company and can provide valuable insights into optimized processes, improving the customer experience or unlocking new business opportunities. However, studies have shown that 80 percent of corporate data lies dormant and unstructured on servers. As a result, companies have no control over this alleged capital and cannot use it in a way that generates profit. Yet, this data is often the key to success in securing sustainable competitive advantages.

"Companies need control over their data to leverage hidden potential. Aparavi gives them this control – that's our mission," said Adrian Knapp, founder of Aparavi. "We are very pleased to have Gregor Bieler as CEO EMEA. His global market expertise, experience with partners, the channel, and enterprises – from mid-sized companies to DAX corporations – is the ideal mix to help us with our mission. I am excited to have Gregor tackle this task with Aparavi."
